art life

one of my favorite artist 

By UK miniature street artist Slinkachu, The last resort.

(via showslow)


Artist My Dog Sighs uses crushed cans he finds on the street as canvases for his awesome Canman series. First the bottom of each can receives a coat of stony grey paint which serves as skin tone. After that the former pieces of litter reveal their own unique personalities as My Dog Sighs creates their facial expressions. Some cans are happy, some sad, some human, some animal, some dapper (check out the sweet mustache and monocle can!). The round ends of the cans sometimes appear to be portholes through which the Canmen peer out at us.

Once completed, the Canmen are prominently placed back on the street where they wait patiently to be discovered and perhaps even taken home by observant pedestrians. Absolutely wonderful. 

Visit My Modern Metropolis to view more photos from the delightful Canman series.
